Third grade students participate in history

Recently, the Heritage Alliance provided third graders from Wescosville, Lincoln and Jefferson elementary schools in the East Penn School District with a hands-on history experience.

Students visited God’s Acre, the Shelter House, the Knauss Homestead and the 1803 House where volunteers directed them through a series of activities which exemplify life in early settlement and colonial times in Emmaus.

At God’s Acre, the site of Emmaus’s beginning, the children paced out the contours of the original church and participated in a scavenger hunt.
